I am the ALPO and BAA coordinator for the Lunar Domes studies. Stefano Sposetti of Gnosca Observatory in Switzerland requested that the main belt asteroid, 1999 TG12, be named "Raffaello Lena", in recognition of my lunar contribution and studies. The IAU approved the request so the asteroid is now 102224 Raffaellolena (https://asteroidraffaellolena.blogspot.com/) In 2021 i have received the BAA Merlin Award in recognition of a notable contribution to the advancement of astronomy https://britastro.org/about-awards I published lunar articles in Icarus, Planetary Space Science, LPSC conference, JALPO, Selenology, JBAA other than in American and Italian magazines.
